"This is quite a performance. Liz has a lovely husky voice, and sings like she means it. Then in comes the orchestral stuff and the choir...pardon me but, holy cow! Just a huge sound. The production seems flawless to me. Overall, really lovely music of faith which will find a place in many hearts." - Pat Smith Audio Review)
"This is nicely done. Understated lyrics. A Biblical allusion without an explanation of which the lyrics still make sense. A lovely arrangement in a huge yet restrained orchestration. Dramatic choral backup where it helps most. And a beautiful voice, sweet yet powerful. Wonderful!" - Bob MacKenzie (Sound Bytes Music Reviews)
"Beautifully executed orchestral element which could have come straight out of the Morriaconni stable (I'm thinking along the lines of "Once upon a time in America" score here) The vocal is brilliantly performed and sensual to the ear. The track(s) immediately put you in a state of lumber, where you can dream away and bring all those nice thoughts (which we seldom accept) back into our minds. I really enjoyed this music and have listened to it several times and each time it gets better." (Carl Bramley)
Liz Smith (Touched By an Angel-CBS) grew up in a musical family, with her mother winning various vocal recognitions and her father winning state fair prizes for his barbershop quartet.
At age 7 she began studying piano. At age 10 she began singing alto in her church choir. In high school and college she sang soprano and alto constantly in choral, small group and solo settings, although music was not her major. A few years after college she "found" her tenor range and has been pursuing its development ever since.
She has worked on numerous projects as a vocal contractor in Los Angeles and Salt Lake City. Liz has been a member and soloist within numerous choirs, as well as holding various
choir management positions.
Her intense performing experiences gained from being a member of an a'capella jazz quartet have honed her listening and performing skills, and have aided in the development of an interesting interpretive style.
She is currently soloist, choir member and board member of The Mountain Chorale based in Salt Lake City, involved in a regional Music in the Schools program sponsored by The Mountain Chorale and involved in the discovery and development of vocalists in her area.
